An elegantly-formatted version of the Bible that was funded by $1.4 million in online donations is finally coming to those who ordered copies over two years ago.
Known as the Bibliotheca, the five-volume Bible is notable for having no verses or chapter headings, thus rendering the Good Book in the style comparable to a novel.
Over the past few days many of those who invested in the project are finally getting their hands on the Bibliotheca, nearly two-and-a-half years after funding the project.
In an update message posted online on Tuesday and emailed to backers, Bibliotheca project head Adam Lewis Greene announced that he had “officially begun fulfilling Bibliotheca.”
“Last week we sent out a small test batch to a few friends to make sure everything was in order, and we’re sending packages out by the thousands every day this week,” wrote Greene.
“We’ve noticed many backers have recently placed another order. If you’ve been considering getting another set as a gift for someone, we’ve been told by the fulfillment center that orders placed by tomorrow (Wednesday Dec. 14) have the best chance of delivery prior to Christmas.”
In July 2014, Greene garnered headlines for his Bibliotheca project, which purported to be a Bible that was more “elegant” than the traditional format for the Good Book.
Bibliotheca boasted of being a Bible devoid of references to chapters, verses, section headers, or other similar conventions.
Greene used the crowd-funding site Kickstarter to fund the project. Originally expecting 500 sets of the Bibliotheca at a total profit of $37,000, by late July 2014. Greene ended up with over 14,800 orders totaling more than $1.44 million.
